Anumantha Kanthasamy, a distinguished professor of biomedical sciences and W. Eugene and Linda R. Lloyd Endowed Chair in Neurotoxicology at the ISU College of Veterinary Medicine, has been working to understand the complex mechanisms of the disease for more than a decade and thinks he has found hope for the cure.

Parkinson's disease sufferers lack a sufficient amount of a brain chemical called dopamine.

Kanthasamy's research shows that there is specific protein that is naturally present in human brains that -- for no known reason -- kills the brain cells that make dopamine.

The cells that are being killed are the ones that produce the needed dopamine.

"We have millions of cells in our brains," said Kanthasamy, "In Parkinson's, about 10,000 of these brain cells die; no one knows why."

Kanthasamy discovered that a novel protein -- known as protein kinase-C (specifically PKCδ) - is killing the dopamine-producing cells.

I certainly hope so! My father has it - he was diagnosed 15 years ago and has managed to keep it fairly under control, but it is beginning to win now.

Sorry to hear your father has this disease, hopefully this new discovery will be available soon for him and others.

My grandfather died from this wretched disease. Unfortunately it will be another 20 years before we see any results. They need to develope the drugs, and test the drugs.

That is the sad part, in fact they publish this information and it seems you never hear about again, if there is a cure of course it will be suppressed by big pharma or the medical community.

It's unfortunate that this is all a big LIE.

You will never have a cure for any disease so long as there is money to make off the treament of said disease. the FDA and the FTC do not want you to be cured, as you are no longer a customer them.

This is all just fluff and propaganda to make it look like they are working on these things when in fact they are just lining their pockets with more "research" money.

If you don't believe me I urge you to read the book entitled "Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You To Know". It will really open your eyes to state of disease and illness in America, and how Big Pharma and the government want you to be more sick than ever.

Thanks tothetenthpower, I have read the book you mentioned, of course you are right, one reason that alternative medicine scares them and they are doing everything the can to try and control it.
